Welcome to our Forum. I am confident that your viral load test will be negative, just as I am confident that you did not get HIV from the exposure that you describe. Condom protected sex is safe sex, even when the condom does not cover the entire the penis and even if you had a small, healing cut on your penis at the time. Similarly, I can assure you that HIV is not transferred on recently used towels, even if the scenario that you described did occur.
As for your symptoms, this is a coincidence. Please remember that your exposure was virtually no risk and that less than half of people who get HIV get the ARS AND that for every cases of ARS that occurs, the same sorts of symptoms occur on literally hundreds of occasions due to community acquired, non-STD/HIV viral illnesses. You really have nothing to worry about. There is no need for you to have further testing. I hope my comments help you to resist the temptation to pursue further unnecessary testing. EWH
Only thing that worries me is the fever timeline, i wont bother u anymore untill i get those results, and will let you know about those. only thing that makes me feel calm is that the duration of fever was quite short. If this would have been ars, would the fever have been for longer period. And thanks alot for helping me
i got those results and they were negative......but i feel always tired, do i need any further testing.
results are written as
HIV 1/0/2 <1.00 02
Index Value: Specimen reactivity relative to the negative cutoff.
HIV 1/0/2 Non Reactive 02
Hope these tests were done in proper way,
The results are negative, as predicted. You do not need further testing since you did not need testing to start with. EWH
